Recent Charleston reviews


    "I'd never before visited Charleston for more than a few hours at a time and was very happy to find such a well equipped, centrally located property. My daughter, her two little ones and my two other grandchildren truly enjoyed our visit. There was something interesting to do each day within 20-30 minutes away or closer. The older grandchildren enjoyed swimming in the pool as well as the many other educational activities we visited. Kathy was there within minutes when there was a mix up with the key to the pool area and she returned the deposit within just a few days of our departure. I would recommend this property without hesitation to anyone visiting the Charleston area."

  • "Southern Charm"

    "We had a wonderful stay at City Centre Inn. My family and I recently stayed at the City Centre Inn while in town for a wedding. We rented 3 of the 4 suites available (the Coastal, the Mod, and the Mary Scott suites). The location is PERFECT and in walking distance to everything (restaurants, shops and historic landmarks). When we arrived we were graciously greeted by the owners. The suites were tastefully updated, however still maintained the architecture and character of the "old south." The Coastal suite was very spacious and faced George Street, therefore allowing us to watch the horse and carriages ride by each day while sitting in the our own living area. The Bedroom in the Coastal was also very spacious boasting a King size bed with memory foam for a good night's sleep. The coastal has a small full size kitchen if needed, fully stocked with untensils and cookware. The coastal suite also had a side patio area fully furnished to sit outside at night and enjoy a nice cocktail or sweet tea! My aunt and her husband stayed in the Mary Scott suite which was on the third floor, entering through the front entrance. The Mary Scott was beautiful!! The furnishings in this suite were very old Charleston. The high bed was beautiful and the fireplace was very victorian. The Mary Scott suite and the piazza was lovely for a nice afternoon nap. My Mother stayed in the Mod suite....this suite was very modern and reminded me of NYC living. While modern, this suite has a brick wall in the bedroom that has been standing for over 100 years. The mix of old and new truly made this home unique. This home is very clean and in an area where walking everywhere is pleasant and safe. The Inn is very charming and whimsical. In addition, the owners were very welcoming and attentive to our needs (providing towels, coffee, parking etc.). Our family made an excellent choice by staying at City Centre Inn as we shared many happy memories together."

  • Lovely, Convenient Home

    "We rented this house for a college girlfriends weekend. There were 7 of us. We loved the house. It was clean and we had room to gather and catch up. Beds were comfortable. We loved the location. You can walk to tons of restaurants and bars on Kings St. There was a parking space which was perfect for the one car we had. Parking in the area looked tough if bringing more than one vehicle. Owner was helpful and responsive."

  • Perfect Charleston getaway!

    "We stayed for a week recently and the accommodations were wonderful. The apt. is in a perfect location a block off King St. with shopping, great restaurants ( try Justine's around the corner for good southern food) and groceries all within walking distance. It's a short drive to the beach or to tour the plantations. I can't say enough good things about the accommodations. The apt. itself is well appointed with everything you would need and the bed was super comfortable (a high priority for me). We would definitely return to this location next time we are in Charleston. It felt like home while we were there - so much nicer than staying in a hotel."
